What’s up Misfits! You’re listening to a VERY special episode of this podcast — it’s the end of season 1, the one year anniversary of Misfits and Mysteries, and Emmy’s last day! Aren’t you guys going to miss her “do-do-do-do” transitions?? No? Ok. Emmy goes out with a bang, telling one of her best-ever stories: The Grunch. You know, it’s that New Orleans-based reptilian-chupacabra-looking ape-and-wolf-sounding cryptid that came from a baby Devil’s balls? Or it’s just a group of inbred,...

Howdy Misfits, this week Steve definitively proves that Brad Pitt is in fact a vampire.  Watch out for the Brad Pitt is a Vampire blog with all my evidence and visuals!  Emmy then takes us down a rabbit hole of her own. Did you know that sea monkey's were invented by the Nazis? I sure as hell didn't.  Finally Emmy closes us out with her very own compelling conspiracy about the Lost City of Atlantis. We're sad to announce that Emmy will be leaving the podcast after next episode. Please...

Good morning, eh! This week we’re headed to Canada, where Emmy tells us about one of the most famous alien encounters of all time: the Falcon Lake incident. The freakiest part may just be this guys Mary Poppins-like bag of secrets. Then, Steve tells us all about the Moon eyed men: a real life group of humans who likely stumbled upon America wayyy before Columbus and his clowns. Steve and Emmy also propose their own conspiracy about sea monkeys living in our sewer systems, and talk about what...

Hey misfits, ready for a cross-country tour of all things spooky? First stop, the Colorado Riverdale Road. Steve takes us through the strange happenings on this street, lt;dr it will take you straight to Hell, or at least to an underground chicken coop. Next up, Emmy takes us away to ~spooky~ Florida for some urban legends (no, “Florida man” is not one of them, but probably a missed opportunity there). First off, she tells us about the Devils Chair, a place where you can go to drop off your...

Is What’s up Misfits! Emmy’s rescued from her alien abduction, and were ready for another kickass episode. Steve hits us with some #spooky first hand stories of encounters with Lucifer himself; like one man who out-drinks the devil and then, in a shocking turn of events, kills his dad — or how about the guys who shot a devil fish? You’ll also learn about some pretty wacky superstitions from the 1880s. Then Emmy catches us up on the little known interview with a female alien from Roswell. This...

Unfortunately Emmy got abducted by aliens and wasn't returned to me on time to complete the episode so I had to draft her replacement.  This week we had an awesome guest host Kelly from the Canada SPIRIT podcast!  We talked everything from Bigfoot and Skunk apes to ghosts and eventually reeled it in to lumberjack folklore before Steve went on tangent about Jackalopes. If you want to hear more from Steve and Emmy, remember to tune in every Thursday for more mind-blowing and hysterical...

Hey Misfits! This week we got a fab episode for ya. Emmy kicks us off with a classic she’s been dying to cover: the fake moon landing. That’s right: 40,000 NASA workers kept the moon landing hoax a secret for 50 years. But the true heros are those on the internet who still point out that there is no wind on the moon (“but how could the U.S. flag be waving in the wind Emmy???!!”). Then, Steve comes at us with a few more hard-hitting factual stories: about kids who have seen ghosts. Steve and...

Hey spooky spooky Misfits! This special creepy-but-not-so-creepy episode features two friends of the show, Austin and Ryan. We dive into some ~creepy pastas~, or spooky internet stories that may just be our own. Did Austin actually get captured by a man and a pink suit at gunpoint, only to get shot in the leg multiple times and survive to tell the tale? Did Emmy’s family actually get murdered years ago — and she’s just been talking to ghosts this whole time? Did Ryan fall victim to an...

Heyo Misifts! Steve may be down 1 appendix, but we still cranked out a fantastic episode for y’all this week. Steve takes us through a few spooky cryptids, like the New Orleans Devil Man. Basically, he’s a regular dude who uses teleportation to skip out on bar tabs (where can I get this super power??). Emmy then overviews a few crazy alien abductions, including an account from this one dude who claims to have ~made love~ with a red haired alien while in a UFO. This begs the question, what...

Hey Misfits, unfortunately we weren't able to post an episode this week because Steve had a *bit* of a medical emergency. Bye bye appendix!  Everything's all good now, we just didn't want him to edit while tired and loopy! Take this week to check out one of our older episodes, and we'll be back super soon with another new, exciting episode for you all. ~ Stay spooky ~

Hey Misfits! Steve and Emmy are back with a brand new episode that’s going to rock your socks off. Emmy kicks it off with the story of the True Way cult — a religion that believed God would appear on a local retail shopping TV channel to save the world from impending destruction. Somehow, that’s not the most ridiculous part: all of the believers were forced to live in middle-of-nowhere Texas where they definitely got barbecue sauce on their all-white uniforms and cowboy hats (at least...

Heyyyy Misfits! This week the Steve and Emmy listens in to a theater-themed ghost story from one of their listeners, Valerie, that left Emmy freaked out for the next two days. Seriously. Then, Emmy takes us through the legend of the Denver International Airport — complete with Illuminati conspiracies, secret underground tunnels, statutes that kill, and so much more. It’s a doozy. Then, Steve talks about the “dancing plague”, a real life disease that spread through Germany back in the day that...

Hey Misfits, we have to settle a very important debate: are you a fork or a spoon person? Choose wisely. After taking us down this rabbit hole, Emmy kicks us off with an age old debate: are birds real, or did the government kill them to get them to stop pooping on our cars? I’ll let you figure that one on your own next time you’re wiping shit off of your windshield. During this segment, Emmy and Steve are also joined by a special guest, Rachel, a friend and adamant BAR (birds aren’t real)...

Heyyooo Misfits! Welcome to this weeks episode where we take you to the ~dark side~. That’s right, Steve recently showed you how to become a vampire, and now you’ll learn how to become a Werewolf. All of us regular humans don’t have to worry, though, because there’s a few easy ways to defeat one — all you have to do is take its pants off. Next, Emmy tells us about the wild world of hollow earth: a theory that there are spooky 15 foot tall monsters living INSIDE of our earth. Yeah, just forget...

Get ready for a dinotastic episode, Misfits! This week Steve and Emmy talk to their favorite paleontologist, Nizar Ibriham (to be fair, he’s the only paleontologist we know, but he’s still pretty cool). He tells us everything from how we know what dinosaurs looked like and ate, to his top 5 dinosaurs he would include in an epic Jurassic Park rerun — and it seems he has a serious preference for the carnivores (me too, Nizar). Then, Steve takes us through the legend of Chessy, the Chesapeake...

Hey hey Misfits! Hope you’re ready for a doozy of an episode. This week, Steve tells us a twisted tale about a double date that turns into a slip in time. Long story short: a few naive friends walk into a hotel that has no pillows and no electricity, and a policeman sends them the wrong way on the “autoroute” (whatever that means). Emmy follows up with a journey of a segment on the 1,600 people that go missing in national parks each year. Some explanations for the disappearances include:...

Hey Misfits! This episode you’ll hear a couple of interesting stories from Steve and Emmy: two twenty-somethings who went to the pediatrician long after it was socially acceptable. First, Steve kicks us off with a few spooky sea stories. Did a sea monster really attack German submarines off the coast of Ireland during WWI, or was it just an very very elderly dinosaur? Then, your favorite podcast duo speaks with a super special guest, Micheal McKenry, former MLB catcher and current Pittsburgh...

Hey Misfits! This special episode, Steve and Emmy dive into two of their favorite subjects: aliens and animals. Steve kicks off with a discussion of Wojtek, an actual real life bear who joined the Polish Army. Not only did this bear help out the troops, but he kicked back with the boys, drinkin brews and smokin cigs. Pretty chill. Then, Emmy carries us through part 2 of the world according to Ancient Aliens. And let me tell you, it’s even crazier than part 1. Did you know that aliens killed...

This week we are joined by a very special misfit: Dr. Emily Zarka, the monster expert from PBS Monstrum! Dr. Z chats with Steve and Emmy about the folklore and origins of monsters, her love of the Vermont Lake Monsters baseball team, her favorite cryptids, and so much more. In fact, she and Steve have both seen a Jackalope — coincidence? Next, Emmy does a deep dive into one of the monsters we learned about during our conversation with Dr. Z, the Monongal. She’s a badass blood sucking...

Hey Misfits, get ready, because this episode is a bit ~spooky~. Emmy had nightmares for about 3 nights after recording her segment on killer clowns. You may know about the most infamous clowns like John Wayne Gracy, but have you heard about the Killer Clowns from Outer Space? How about the college campus killer clowns, or the mysterious love triangle of a husband’s scorned clown lover? Afterward, you’ll hear Steve chat through some freaky freak show performers, from Jo Jo the Dog Faced Boy...

Before we dive in, Steve tells us that his creepy attic bedroom might actually be haunted by two ghosts; and Emmy has been afraid of the dark ever since. Then, Steve tells us some wild just-released Bigfoot and Jersey Devil Attack News, one of which took place in Emmy's favorite restaurant of all time: Applebee's. Emmy keeps us on the topic of cryptids with the story of the Squonk, a creature so...

Hey Misfits — Be careful, Steve and Emmy each had a BEER while recording, so this episode contains some hot takes. First, Steve tells us some crazy Cryptid stories — like the time Bigfoot threw a snake at a woman’s car (spoiler alert, that’s the whole story). Then, Emmy covers the legend of the Kraken, which Steve and Emmy discover is somewhere between the size of a football field and a school bus, but we’re not really sure. Then, things get steamy as Steve reads the review of his new...
